Mandatory Minimum Total: A Complete Guide

Created by Designer Nahin, Modified on Thu, 25 Jan at 11:42 AM by Designer Nahin


This feature gives you the ability to set a mandatory minimum total threshold for your end total for the cost calculator that a customer must reach before they can proceed with any further steps in the cost calculator form.

Whether you want to establish a minimum spend, prevent low-cost inquiries, or ensure a specific return on each transaction, the Minimum Price feature gives you the flexibility to do so. By setting a minimum price, you can effectively streamline your operations, focus on customers ready to meet your pricing, and ultimately drive your business profitability.

Customers will be required to select products or services until the total cost hits your pre-defined minimum price. Only then will they be able to view an itemized list, receive an email quote, or make a payment.
